Right girls – I’ve put together a couple of gift guides and Christmas present advice for shopping for your friends and family, but it seems I’ve missed off another important category: the men in your life.
Now I don’t know about you, but I seriously struggle with the men in my life. My boyfriend, Martin, likes nothing materialistic. But I feel like I’ve ran out of all the ‘experience’ style gifts and adventures we’ve done over the past few years.
My Dad also isn’t a huge ‘gifty’ type of man. And lets face it, how boring do we feel when we constantly gift aftershave, male body care, a bottle of their favourite tipple or a pair of socks?
Today’s post is to share with you a selection of gifts for men from Find Me A Gift. I’ve managed to get my boyfriend a few gifts from the site, so I’m praying he doesn’t go on my blog over the next few weeks! Although that being said, I’ve actually gave him one of the gifts early, mainly because it’s a Christmas gift before Christmas.
A first thought is, if the man in your life has a man cave or home bar, a custom neon sign could be the perfect gift for him. You could create one that says his nickname, favourite quote, song lyric or sports team. The possibilities are endless. They not only look amazing, but it’s also a super thoughtful gift!
Lets take a look…
Boostbox Protein Advent Calendar
A brilliant pre-Christmas gift for the active, protein loving men out there is this Boostbox Protein Advent Calendar. My boyfriend Martin regulary has protein snacks before and after his gym workouts, so this calendar is literally perfect for him.
It features 25 windows, each filled with a daily protein treat to feed their festive fitness regime. All windows reveal a full sized product, too!
The nice thing is, is that this calendar introduces the recipient to multiple protein brands, with popular brand Phd and Pulsin being some of them. It includes bars, balls, flapjack, fudge, cookies and more, with over 10 tantalising flavours.
The perfect Christmas treat for gym & fitness enthusiasts
